Amazon announces "Micro" instances for MySQL RDS

Amazon announces “Micro” instances for MySQL RDS

Amazon RDS MySQL Now Starting at Just $19 a Month

I’m always happy to be able to talk about AWS options that lower costs and add flexibility for our customers.

To that end, I am pleased to announce the availability of Micro instances for Amazon RDS for the MySQL database engine. The t1.micro RDS instance is a low cost instance type designed for low traffic web applications, test applications and small projects.

At ~$19 / month (or ~$8.60 / month if you reserve and instance for 3 years), with the option of RDS’ usual features — multi-availability-zone deployments, read-replicas — this is awesome news.
